MicroBuild Fund offers longer-term social investment capital to financial institutions seeking to develop products that support the housing goals of low-income clients. The Fund is an initiative of Habitat for Humanity and is managed by Triple Jump. MicroBuild Fund aims to have a catalytic impact on the sector, providing as many as 40 different financial institutions in more than 20 countries with $50 million in debt and equity funding by 2017.
Along with its capital, MicroBuild provides a technical assistance program that helps financial institutions develop appropriate products for housing and property improvement. The program helps these institutions perform advanced risk and portfolio management for what are usually larger and longer-term loans. It also helps them assess client land tenure and provides construction design and other client support services.
